Women’s Democratic League

The mission and goals of the Women’s Democratic League (WDL) of Frederick County are to affiliate women with the Democratic Party, create greater interest in politics, promote a better understanding of local, state and national issues and assist in electing Democrats to office.

From our establishment in 1923 to the present, the WDL is actively involved in service projects that benefit needy members of our community. Other activities include staffing the Democratic Party tent at the Great Frederick Fair and "In the Streets" celebration, attending several city and county events, and collaborating with other groups/organizations to build a stronger Democratic Party.

The WDL supports Democratic candidates running for local, county, state and national office and raises money for and contributes to their general election campaigns. WDL members may also volunteer and campaign for individual candidates on the party ticket.


Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at Cafe 611, 611 North Market Street, Frederick, preceded by social time beginning at 6:30 p.m. Check the calendar each month for possible additional or updated details.
